Crackerbox Palace

Brandon, Manitoba, June 2009

Although this Polacolor image was never intended for inclusion in Garish, I snapped up this photograph on one of my last trips during the assembly phase of the book. 

Have you ever had an image inside your head of your dream house, but one you've never seen in reality, just in your imagination?  When I was a boy of eleven, upon hearing George Harrison's single, "Crackerbox Palace," the thoughts that my mind conjured to the music and lyrics were not far different from this charming little house.  Too bad it's not for sale.  

Maybe one day, I'll hire the equally lovely Sandra Rinomato to be my realtor.  She's only one province away from Manitoba, in Toronto.
